Two guys are in a car. The passenger, who's inconsiderately grubbing, mistakenly drops a McDonald's french fry between the seats, compelling the driver to turn to him with a short, harsh "Dude" -- shorthand for "You better pick that shit up and fast."
If you've ever wondered what happens to the stuff lost in motor vehicle ether, here's your chance. Spare change, ballpen caps and -- yes, mislaid fries -- become window trimmings in a universe composed of lost souls, toiling for the pleasure of a crazed, invisible god.
Saatchi & Saatchi/LA busts out with "Harmony," a wee bit of weirdness in which a Toyota Prius drives leisurely through a dormant landscape and sets it blooming -- not just with flowers and and trees, but with what appear to be Munchkins.
Shoe firm TerraPlana has this new technology called Vivo Barefoot, which gives shoes the power to stimulate your sensory perception "every time you touch the ground."
Not sure what exactly that means, but it sounds suspiciously like broken shock absorbers.
Anywho, to show how free and awesome your feet are gonna feel, the company's disseminating a video called "Pian-Toe."
Coca-Cola kicks off barbeque season with a set of fresh and festive Coke cans. Each is red with the silver silhouette of something summery -- sunglasses, a grill, a beach ball -- and the logo, either peeking out of the image or interacting with it some other way.
The one at left looks kind of like Diet Coke masquerading as Coca-Cola Classic. (We'll leave you to make the aspartame-laced-wolf-in-sheep's-clothing jokes.) But this is infinitely less gauche than the limited-edition Ramadan cans.
Provided your definition of "happy" is yellow and zesty.
With help from Euro RSCG/NY, French's -- which is apparently over a hundred years old -- kicks off its latest campaign with "Happy Starts Here" -- a tribute to how each bottle of French's now comes with 40% MORE FREE!.
Air New Zealand promotes its no-hidden-fees policy with an ad where pilots, flight attendants and baggage jockeys sport nothing but paint in lieu of uniforms.
Maybe for morale's sake, CEO Rob Fyfe of Air New Zealand stars as one of the baggage lackeys/air traffic controllers. (He recently attested to being "absolutely flattered" after winning Hottest Businessman in a New Zealand BusinessDay poll.)
- Dollplay for Dollhouse, ARG-style.
- Sprint's YouTube-tastic human clock. (Saucy.)
- Calling all yelpers. No, not the hipster elitist resto-reviewers.
- Yahoo Sideline is an app that lets you keep track of Twitter searches you make often, updates them in real-time, and lets you skim them in tandem. Think TweetDeck for the buzz-thirsty. (More thoughts at Mashable.)
Who needs Disney when you've got the California Milk Processor Board? Watch with conviction renewed how two princes-to-be win royal mates.
Hmm. So U.K retailer Marks & Spencer runs an ad to apologize for charging more for its larger sized bras because, well, they have more fabric and they cost more to make but they run the ad with the headline, "We boobed," as if equating boobs to a mistake.
So, Marks & Spencer, are you saying breasts - of any size - are a mistake? Hmm. Not a very nice thing to say when you make your money holding up half the world's chests.
Oy. When will we stop the prejudicial hateraid parade towards any woman with more than a mere ant hill on her chest?
It's live paintball, everybody, brought to you by a handful of creatives: Brigham White, Richard Fleming, Aaron Mcguire and Taran Chadha, who lives in Boulder -- the rock under the shadow of CP+B.
From The Denver Egotist:
"At ShootTheBanker.com, angry humans queue up behind other angry humans (much like the line at the post office) for their chance to aim and fire a paintball gun at a live actor playing the role of "banker" on a faux stage. All while he fires his best shit-talk back at you. Before you go postal for real, give this thing a whirl. Ah, America."
